Burning coal, oil, and gas releases carbon dioxide into our atmosphere and it increases the amount of heat trapped from the sun.

For decades, the price of gasoline at the pump has not included the cost of these emissions from our tailpipes.

Economists often maintain that putting a price on this pollution is a more cost-effective solution than regulations or subsidies.

Join Climate Conversations on ZOOM at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, June 19 to learn about the cost of carbon to society and the current use of carbon taxes.

Dr. Nancy Olewiler, our guest speaker, is an economist at the School of Public Policy at Simon Fraser University and she has a special interest in energy and natural resources.

Nancy has also served on the board of directors of BC Hydro and TransLink.

Everyone is welcome.
